Late Vehicle Registration Fees

Failure to register a vehicle on time results in a $25 per month late fee, after a one‑month grace period, up to $100 total.  Certain exemptions are provided for vehicles that are:

  • used for operating a commercial business and were idled for a full registration period;
  • owned by military personnel serving outside Colorado when the grace period for renewal has passed and the vehicle is not operated on a public highway until re‑registration; and
  • stolen, and the registration expired during the time, or duration of, the theft.
